NJTPA is currently developing Plan 2040, the next Regional Transportation Plan for the region. It is an update of Plan 2035 discussed below. Please visit the Plan 2040 website for updates and opportunities to provide input and feedback.
Plan 2035 is the 2009 update of the NJTPA’s Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), which is the federally mandated long-range transportation plan for the NJTPA’s 13-county region. It was approved by the NJTPA Board of Trustees on August 24, 2009.
Adoption of the plan was announced in a press release and at a press briefing (audio files available).
Plan 2035 sets out a vision for development of the transportation system over the next 25 years and serves as an investment guide for the region. It is updated every four years. Plan 2035 was developed with extensive Board and stakeholder involvement, including symposia, visioning workshops and roundtables held over the past year. It includes analysis of three different funding scenarios and contains the fiscally constrained long-range plan for the region.
